the "des moines register" essentially blamed obama for the republican strategy and then sort of indulged the fantasy that the mitt that you see is not the real mitt it's a secret mitt is the real mitt that existed in massachusetts long before. >> even if you look at mitt romney's record in massachusetts it doesn't exactly speak to bipartisan consensus, used the line item veto, 750, 800 times. the myth making around his middle of the roadness has been extraordinary. >> right. >> you're right. a big law on health care and not much else. but that was a big thing. >> jonathan chaits, i'm going to echo him but not quote from him. if you look on facebook, jonathan endorsed an argument really took off. i think that's partly because people who do lean one way or in a place now where they're paying attention and want to hear the right argument. i dodge think mayor bloomberg is going to persuade a lot of people in the close here, but for people leaning towards obama it is mobilizing. that is really the point at this phase in an election. i mean we talked about jay-z being on obama's side and to qu
by the romney and obama campaigns. republicans are emphasizing the increase in the unemployment rate from 7.9% to 7.8%. supporters of the president point out 171,000 jobs were created during the month, more than economists projected. i had a chance to talk about the impact of the numbers with the former chairman of the president's council of economic advisers. he's now a professor of economics at chicago's booth school of business. i asked him if he agreed with mitt romney's assessment that the, quote, increase in the unemployment rate is a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual standstill. >> i don't think so. the last month, the unemployment rate came down three ticks. and the romney campaign complained that we hadn't created more jobs. this month, the number of jobs created was 30%, 40% higher than expected and was fairly strong. and then they criticize that the unemployment rate ticked up one tenth. it's the last number before the election, so i think both sides are going to see, try to go through and interpret what it means. i think overall, most economists view it as a fairly s

about statement president obama made this year? what did the president say that republicans then lied about, day in and day out? and even devoted one night of their convention to lying about? this. this was the most lied about thing president obama said this year. >> if you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. there was a great teacher somewhere in your life. somebody helped to create this unbelievable american system that we have that allowed you to thrive. somebody invested in roads and bridges. if you got a business, you didn't build that. somebody else made that happen. the internet didn't get invented on its own. government research created the internet so that all the companies could make money off the internet. the point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. there are some things just like fighting fires we don't do on our own. so we say to ourselves, every since the founding of this country, you know what? there's some things we do better together. >> that is the full versio

the republicans. guess what, obama's margin was 262,000 in no way, most of it fueled by a huge turnout in early voting, and that he lost the election day voting to make romney. so this is not a good sign commend i have been watching this trend for a week. the margins are getting bigger. on tuesday it was 150 some odd thousand. now it is larger than what obama won the state by a in 2008. this is a bad sign for president obama, and we see it reflected in the polls as well. if you take a look, allup says 15 percent of the people had voted early. they were breaking for romney by 52-46. this week to reports 19 percent of those surveyed said they had voted. a break for romney by 50-43. obama won the early vote last time around, according to puke, by 19 points or was winning at this point by 19 points and now he's losing it by seven. that is more than enough to flip the election. lou: two things, if we can go back to your board, immediately apparent command one is that there is a 5-4 margin if i read correctly, democrats over republicans in the early vote in 2008 that ratio was over two times -- two

obama won the state of florida and the presidency. oops. last year florida's new republican governor rick scott decided he was not going to make that mistake again. rather than expanding voting, the new one decided he would cut the days for early voting almost in half in order to make voting harder. look. at least that's how it works. long, long, long lines for early voting in polls places across florida except this year it's long lines with no relief in sight. we have been getting pictures ever since early voting started in the state. this is how democracy works in florida this year. look at this. get in line. wait and wait. wait an hour. wait four hours. wait five hours. yesterday florida democrats and the nonpartisan group the league of women voters asked the governor to do something about the long lines. they asked him to add a day of voting to open the polls on the last sunday before the election when many african-americans usually plan to car pool after church to go vote. the governor said no. florida's governor said, "early voting will end on saturday night, but i want everybo

the republicans--no, no, no. this is what he sees. he sees colin powell and barack obama, look at that, they're both black. that's a classic case of projection. he thinks us republicans we vote based on race. if there is a black quite versus a white guy we vote for the white guy. that's what cool bin powell is doing, too. no colin powell has a brain.

. we are here as part of our 100- city silenced majority to wear. on this week when president obama and republican presidential hopeful mitt romney debated issues of foreign policy and the economy, we turn to world-renowned political dissident, linguist, author, and mit professor noam chomsky. in a recent speech, professor chomsky examined topics largely ignored or glossed over during the campaign -- from china to the arab spring, to global warming and the nuclear threat posed by israel versus iran. he spoke last month at the university of massachusetts in amherst, at any event sponsored by the center for popular economics. his talk was entitled, "who owns the world?" >> when i was thinking about these remarks, i had two topics in mind. i could not decide between them. pretty obvious ones. one topic is, what are the most important issues that we face? the second topic is, what issues are not being treated seriously or at all in the quadrennial frenzy now under way called in election? but i realize that there is no problem. it is not a hard choice. they are the same topic. there are
house not winning ohio. there is a deep republican tradition in this state. the fact that it's an obama fire wall is what is remarkable. this is a state that mitt romney could do well. he should do well. running the obama's campaign core strategy appealing to middle class voters, working class whites in this state makes a big difference when it comes to ground game and that critical early voting. mitt romney has had a real problem connecting to those folks. >> who is he leading with in ohio? >> president obama is leading with women. he's leading with centrist business 0 points. losing independents by two points. losing white men by a considerable margin. leading with folks who make undered 50 e$50,000 a year. so the national themes are evident here in ohio. >> when you say independents and centrists, you're describing them as two separate things. a lot of viewers think independents means centrists. >> in the past, they have. one of the fascinating things about this election, the impact of the tea party on independent voters, it moved them to the right. so you see independents edging tow
in manassas with bill clinton and dave matthews. yesterday new york mayor endorsed president obama. >>> his republican rival is making stops in other parts of ohio today. governor mitt romney was in the battleground state of virginia yesterday. this morning rom fee holds a rally in wisconsin, then heads to a couple of campaign events in ohio. >>> one issue in this year's race for president is jobs and later on this morning we'll find out how the economy is doing with the big monthly unemployment report. comes out at 8:30 and economistsesque president-elect it to show a slight rise in the nation's jobless rate. >>> more about the attack in libya. a new time line has surfaced. >>> stocks rise on strong economic data. the dow gained 136, the nasdaq picked up 24 points and japan added more than 100 points overnight. even though european stocks are falling they are still at two-week highs. right now the time is 5:37. we'll be right back. announcer: the washington post on roscoe bartlett: "a champion of the tea party...an ideologue who is part of the problem in congress." bartlett calls medicare
jobs numbers, president obama and republican rival mitt romney are battling it out over the economy. >> and unless we change course, we may well be looking at another recession. >> we've made real progress, but we are here today because we know we've got more work to do. >> employers added 171,000 jobs in october, but with more americans looking for work, the
, but you also have bob mcdonnell of west virginia, another republican surrogate, who said the obama administration's response has been incredibly fast. >> i wouldn't go that far. they came in separately and they left separately. but sometimes governors have to do what governors do and presidents have to do what presidents do. i get that. and i think for the moment, your man probably got some. john, i want to ask you, i've been reading in the newspapers -- you correct me if i'm wrong. your superpack and other republican super packs have put $4 million into pennsylvania. team obama, only $625,000. for $4 million, jonathan, you want a rate of return better than a utility executive. you want to actually win the race in that state. >> we wouldn't be spending the money if we didn't think that there were real opportunities in michigan, pennsylvania, and minnesota, as well as wisconsin. the real measure here of that's going on, you go back to that politico george washington university poll, the most recent one. there was a 13-point advantage for republicans in voter intensity, in voter enth
. republicans criticize obama for the mounting national debt, and they say the unemployment rate, 7.8%, is unacceptably high. >> the latest poll suggests the candidates are running close, but they were taken before the storm hit shore. earlier gene otani spoke about obama's successes and his failures. >> the president is not the first president obviously to promise change, but he certainly made that word stick. how do voters think he's done? >> obama did change a number of things and not the least of which is of course health care reform. presidents on both sides of the aisle tried before him and failed. and he ended the war in iraq and he passed the stimulus among a number of other financial initiatives. some experts say he was perhaps too ambitious. >> coming in he said the administration was to really change the course of foreign policy and economic policy that the bush administration had been following. and he was elected on that mandate. but it was again difficult for him to achieve that change. apparently because the problem is so huge that they can't really change the structu
obama care hurts seniors by slashing medicare. redistricting will have a big impact helping republicans. >> for the most part, republicans, because they made such overwhelming gains not only in congress, but in state legislatures last year, they were able to control the redistricting process in a lot of key states. for example, north carolina where democrats will probably lose a couple seats this cycle. >> reporter: gop gains look likely in districts from north carolina to arkansas among others. in fact, they even put traditional blue states like rhode island and massachusetts into play. democrats are trying hard to unseat gop incumbents in blue states like california, new york, and illinois. and could see gains in maryland and florida. so why do these house races matter? members of congress will have to make big decisions in the coming months. chief among them, reaching a deal to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff, a series of tax increases and spending cuts set to take effect next year. >> the decisions confronting congress over the next four months are bigger than i think most of us ha
the day scaring the held out of republicans by praising president obama. >> but everyone's asking how was this storm going to affect the election? and i think it's given obama momentum. i mean, obviously he didn't plan it. they'll try to blame it on him, of course. but it's because of how he's handled it. he approached it so differently than bush. he showed up. >>> thanks for watching today. the next hour of "cnn saturday morning" starts right now. from the cnn center, this is "cnn saturday morning." good morning, everyone. i'm randi kaye. glad you're with us. president obama and governor romney focus on the swing states as both candidates make their final push. in the aftermath of super storm sandy, gas rationing starts in new jersey today in an effort to cut down on those long lines at the gas station. plus, during this tragedy, a man has become a much-needed angel to one new jersey community. >>> just three days to go until election day and the presidential candidates are launching a weekend battleground blitz to win over undecided voters. today, president obama campaigns in ohio,
doing the swing state shuffle.as mary ellen hopkkns explains... president obama and republican cdidate mitt romney are making non-stop appearances in ight ssates that are still up for gr. grabs. president obama made his case to voters in las vegaa. he echoed the slogan from his changg to ammrica.right now, we could beeputtinn more ffoks more roads bridges, expanddng - broadband to rural neighborhoods, making sure our pchools are stateeoo the art. pet's put merican's back to worr doing the work that needs to be done.mitt romney hit back on the president's "change" theme during a campaign stoppin roanoke, virginii.there's no question in my view that we really like the last four years. thh obama folls are hanting four more yearss four more years, bbt our cchat is this five more dayss five more days is our chant...(applause).romney pdlivers hht hhs campaign says is his ""cosing argument" toddy during a stop inn pisconsin. then he's off to ohio for two rallies.obama will also be in ohio -- where he'll hold ttree grassroots the white hoose.. the candidates and their runninn mates will m
expected to get from the republican -- president obama never expected to get from republican governor christie before the election. >> a great working relationship. to make sure that we are doing jobs that people elected us to do. i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern. and compassion for our state and for the people of our state. >> unlikely duo, the endangered democratic incumbent and man who just two months ago tried to help unseed him. by delivering the keynote at the republican national convention. what brought them together today was the need for federal aid after the raw horror of superstorm sandy. >> the two bonded at the community center in new jersey, where dozens have been sleeping since their homes were destroyed. aboard marine 1, the president and governor shared a rivetting one-hour aerial tour of the utter devastation. >> we will not forget, we will follow up to make sure that you get all the help that you need, until you rebuilt. >> a chance for the president to show off the benefits of incumbency. just as the latest fox news poll shows he is faci
president obama was able to do with republicans. but the image that we saw with president obama and chris christie touring the hurricane damage does seem to be almost a counterfactual to the claim that mitt romney chs making. >> it could play into guilt by association. you have some of the supporters of governor romney who are if you will poo-pooing on that moment of joint unity. it makes some voters take pause to say these are people in romney's camp who say this is a bad thing. how can you see this as anything other than a good thing to have these two leaders together. >> right. people actually criticized the republicans, including rush limbaugh, who pounced on that. hurricane sandy, where people actually might say somehow this was the moment where either mitt romney or barack obama lost the contest, the blame to put on this, we saw this before. of course, it was in 2008 with lehman brothers collapse. you say a lot of republicans blame that for john mccain and sarah palin's loss more than the overall dynamics of what that presidential contest was about. in 2004 that osama bin laden tape
republican man talking about rape. >> you have to look at the trend of polls. six months ago obama campaign was touting 20% of gender gap that they have of women. now he only has 8% aboveomne thenou he to look what happened in 2008. obama got 56% of the women. now he's only getting 50. there's a loss in enthusiasm among women. you really have to look at the trend of the polls. >> loss as compared to four years ago but as erin pointed out the last few comments have come from republican candidates that have really energized the discussion about women's reproductive rights. are those, murdoch, et ceta responsible for this recent jump in the gender gap in obama's favor? >> i don't think so at all. more liberal women are paying attention to what murdoch was saying. if you hold all republicans accountable then old democrats accountable for what kirsetn simens say that stay at home wives were leeching off of their husbands which is unacceptable f. we're going to hold that to standards we can point out owl kinds of people in democrats or republicans. >> let's go deeper in women in swing states that
on the ground in tunisia thanks to two republican united states senators. president obama didn't make it happen. it was republican senators saxby chandlis. tonight the fbi is finally in tunisia to question in person the man caught on video during the attack. how can two republican senators get done in two days what the president of the united states could not get done in weeks? senator lindsey graham joins us. good evening, sir. >> good evening. >> greta: what what is the explanation? i would think with all due respect to the united states senate that in you are the president of the united states you have more muscle than you do if you are a member of the u.s. senate and the fbi has been trying to talk to this man in tunisia. tunisia has said no and then you and senator chandliss got into it two nights ago and voila, you could talk to him. >> i wrote a letter three days ago to the ambassador, u.s. ambassador, tunisia ambassador to the united states saying this is a defining moment in our relationship. i know tunisia well. i know the prime minister. and within two days we were able to get the fb
on the republican side says governor romney is going to win and everybody on president obama's side says he is going to win. how do you measure it tonight? >> i mean you know obviously, i guess an obama rally you would feel differently. at this rally it seems like he has enormous enthusiasm. this has the feeling of a winning campaign. the enthusiasm here tonight was tremendous. if this s a is swing state i feel good about it even if the polls about even and even if obama has a lead of one or two i suspect the undecided votes are going to go to mitt romney. i have a pretty good feeling about ohio. and if he wins ohio, i think he wins and maybe president obama could feel the same way about it. this is probably the key state. >> greta: why do you all leave, ohio, and spread out across the country? why don't you all just stay in ohio if that is so important, got to get every vote there. >> because you got to make sure you win the others too. you have to make sure you win, virginia, and win colorado and win wisconsin and you win florida. florida you can't take for granted. florida is just as critical. ma
effort to deny president obama any republican votes on anything. which was sort of brutally enforced. i mean, there are republican senators whom i know of, who i voted in health care, for example, against ideas that they hads espoused on the floor of the senate. but they vote against them. and at one point, the president asked one senator in particular, you know, what can i do? what can i put into this bill that will get your vote? and the answer was, you know, frankly, mr. president, there is nothing, because i simply cannot expose myself politically and vote for even things that i support. i mean, that's the lunacy that has passed for congress, under the republicans in the past four years. >> indeed. richard, stop press. we have breaking news. mitt romney, although refusing to answer personal questions of any kind, three-week anniversary today from the last time he answered a question, he has now issued a statement, supporting fema. he says, i'm quoting, as president, i will ensure fema has the funding it needs to fulfill its mission. so once again, here's mitt romney, finger in the a
president obama is not actually some socialist radical, where there is no common ground that republicans can find. there is common ground, if the republicans stop campaigning and start dealing with the problems in front of this country. >> to richard's point, eugene, do you not think that this now exposes mr. eric cantor, mitch mcconnell, and the congressional republicans for what they have been doing? and it seems almost cyclical, as richard was saying, at the beginning of this presidency, they say they're going to oppose him. at the end, he finds one republican in the form of chris christie, who's willing to work with him. >> it is amazing, one. one in there. in fact, there's more than one. and there would have been, frankly, a lot more, had there not been this organized effort to deny president obama any republican votes on anything. which was sort of brutally enforced. i mean, there are republican senators whom i know of, who i voted in health care, for example, against ideas that they hads espoused on the floor of the senate. but they vote against them. and at one point, the president a
key swing states. republican rob portman of ohio who played president obama in romney's debate prep. 18 electoral votes in play in a state obama won in '08 by 4.6 points and now leading by 2.3 points in the the latest realclearpolitics average of recent polls. republican ron johnson of wisconsin, ten electoral votes at stake. obama won by almost 14 points last time and now leading by 2.3. democrat mark warner of virginia. obama won its 13 elector aral votes by 6 points is four years ago but now tied with romney and democrat mark udall of colorado. obama won the nine electoral votes last time by nine points. the race there now dead even. senator portman let's start with the state that most people think may decide this race and that is ohio. the obama camp says they have a big edge in early voting in the state and also note that they have 137 campaign offices around the country while the romney camp has only 39. >> well, chris first of all, you mentioned the real clear poll techs average in ohio being 2.3% in president obama's favor. as of this morning it is 1.9% actually and that is
york city took new steps toward getting back to normal. and president obama and republican challenger mitt romney returned to full-scale campaigning, with the election just five days off. we have follow-up online to our story on the street drugs known as bath salts. kwame holman has the details >> holman: state officials in maine are linking the abuse of bath salts to increased rates of child neglect. we look at that and the latest scientific research on the drug. spencer michels examines propositions and congressional races on the ballot in california. and older americans are working longer and returning to the workforce after retiring. you can help paul solman look into that demographic shift. if you're an older worker, fill out a questionnare on the rundown. all that and more is on our website newshour.pbs.org. jeff? >> brown: and again, to our honor roll of american service personnel killed in the afghanistan conflict. we add them as their deaths are made official and photographs become available. here, in silence, are eight more. >> brown: and that's the "newshour" for tonight.

, a republican, side by sidewalking around the board walk on the jersey shore, that's what president obama could not have asked for for the final five days of this campign judy. >> woodruff: margaret, what about these states? i looked again at this list of states the president is going to over the next several days. it's the same battlegrand states we've been focused on. we showed them there in the a.pe p of the states considered tossups. do they see movement in onep state or another? and how do they read the romney going to pennsylvania, running ads in minnesota? >> sometimes when you go to a state that's a rea it's because you want to expand your win. there not reading this that as what gove ror romney is doing in pennsylvania. as jonathan said, they're orlooking at it as governor romy looking for an alternate path to 270. don't forget, president obama is closer than he wants to be in a lot of places: colorado, nevada, nevada should have been tucked away a while ago. >> wisconsin even. >> wisconsin. and so the fact that he is returning to these places again and again and again, they'll say we'
the right to vote. the obama campaign thanks the republican governor when he did that and then with a significant boost from early voting, democrat barack obama won the state of florida and he won the presidency. oops. last year florida's new republican governor, governor rick scott, decided he was not going to make that mistake again. rather than expand opportunities for voting the way florida's two previous republican governors had done, the new one, republican governor rick scott, decided he would cut the days for early voting almost in half in order to make voting harder. look. at least that's how it works. tah-dah! long, long, long lines for early voting in polling places across florida. except this year it's long lines with no relief in sight. we have been getting pictures like this from voters who live in florida emp since early voting started in the state. this is how democracy works in florida this year. look at this. get in line. wait and wait. wait an hour. wait four hours. wait five hours. more. yesterday florida democrats and the nonpartisan group the

was leading president obama in these ohio republican internal polls by just one point. they've seen his numbers go down. the obama campaign tells me that he's consistently led two to four points in their internal polling. you might say it's spin, but these two campaigns are seeing very different data. >> do you trust these people that are giving you these numbers? are they just giving you numbers, or do you really believe them? which of these people are the most credible when it comes to numbers when you match them up against other evidence? >> one of the things that the romney campaign was suggesting, just about an hour ago on a conference call that they had, the romney pollster, neil newhouse, was saying that he doesn't buy some of these national polls, because he was just pointing out that the quinnipiac "new york times" poll, and said that was weighted more heavily toward registered voters than likely voters and thought that it sort of overshowed a little bit of enthusiasm for democrats, and i keep hearing this over and over again, from republicans, chris, and that is, they don't be

will be bipartisan. i can't help but want to point out that the republicans for the entirety of obama's term have said no, no, no. and so what they're really say something we've been nasty when there's a democrat as president. but elect a republican and we'll be happy to work for him. this is kind of political extortion. >> i want to button this conversation up with what i think is an overarching point. that really does frame the last nine days. we were told this was going to be the ultimate clarifying campaign. two distinct choices. now i feel nine days out -- a fair amount of uncertainty. there's the question of which mitt romney are you going to get if he becomes president and there's the question of, what's the second term for president obama going to look like? >> i want to talk about the last nine days, we were talking about how mitt romney has a message advantage in this respect -- he gets to say the same thing for the next nine days. because all he's trying to do is win over the swing voting women, if it's the reason why you don't hear the larger message, because he can't do it. >> david,
